and decided he was for an individual mandate. >> candidate obama won't tell us what he wants to do on social security and what his ideas are for a grand bargain with the republicans, so i think governor romney on this point, yes, if you take strictly what he said and what he hasn't said it is not cle how itdds up but don't think there any mystery that if he not elected his tax plan would be, would resellable this but there is a way to swear some of the inconsistencies and fill in some of the holes and maybe there wouldn't be as much deficit reduction or maybe not quite -- wouldn't hold harmless people at slightly lower incomes but we don't think this is a huge discrepancy between romney's lack of express ity and the presidents. >> i would say every candidate is inclear about some things and even some inconsistencies, obama did in '08 and he did this time. >> but when you look at what romney has laid out compared to other challengers it is less detailed than what other challengers have laid out and i think that is a legitimate critique for people to make. to repeat i don't think it will driv
and tell you why i have done a good job, i think president obama when he had those opportunities, either punted and didn't want to, you know, go into the rough and tumable with the governor, which is surprising, because i wouldn't have expected that from him. >> rose: thank you, ben, thank you, david. >> thank you, charlie. >> rose: great to see you. back in a moment, stay with us. the fundamental principles of democracy rely on an accurate and reliable system of vote counting. despite continued advances in voting technology, zero there are security issues still persist, barbara simons is an expert on electronic voting and on the advisor of the election commission and her book is called broken ballots will your votes counties, welcome. >> thank you very much, it is a pleasure. >> you have been involved in computer science most of your adult left. >> i have a ph.d. >> rose: yes. that qualifies you. how did you get involved in this, though, the technology of voting? >> well, in 2003, a colleague of mine, david dill, a professor at stanford discovered that silicon centrally, santa clara cou
they're trying to tell about president obama? i get that they don't like him but what is the strategy here? on the republican side, a reason that the money has slowed down a little bit is that people are disappointed with the overall big picture, strateg. >> i'm sure you don't mean to imply that there's more coordination -- >> i'm trying to imply there's a lot more common sense we've been advertising on our side than they have been doing on their side. >> when i just made that comment to bill, obviously, in a lighthearted way because super pacs, by law, are not allowed to coordinate with the campaigns. >>> the visit comes three weeks after the attack. the day after a newspaper reporter found sensitive documents laying around the site, one talking about a need for increased security days before the attack. that's "out front" next. >>> once mitt romney and paul ryan take the stage we'll go there live. ♪ [ man ] excuse me miss.

doesn't do that. obama pretty much tells like it is. did he do a good job in the debate? >> no. >> governor i want to ask you about vice president biden yesterday on the stump, some comments that people are calling a gaffe by biden where he said obama and biden want to raise taxes by a trillion dollars. guess what, yes we do. is that the right kind of message? >> wait a minute. excuse me but the rest of that you haven't in full context. yes we'll raise taxes on the wealthy. they have been saying that for a year. specifically he said we're not is going raise taxes on the middle class. that's what he said. this is not a gaffe. this is a media hand wringing. when i was campaigning lots of people accused me of gaffes all the time. a gaffe is what people say in washington when you tell the truth and they think you shouldn't have. yeah, the democrats are going raise taxes on wealthy people so we can help balance the budget. that's a pretty reasonable thing. >> governor dean, do you think this debate has consequences for this campaign? >> i debater, he's well prepared, he's obviously
obama to go all in, stop passing the plate, and tell voters how to get them over the hump in saving bucks, because as i see it, both campaigns have more cash than, well, whole countries. the issue's not whether you have enough of it, but what you do with it. the cash on hand is not -- if we learned anything from mitt romney last night is that a debate for which he didn't pay a penny is nothing short of the prices. cash might be king, but you can't be king if you don't get your butt before voters. your fat cat handlers will understand. they want you elected. just say you elect to stay away from them, as far as possible, until you are. charlie, what he makes of all of this because, think about it, more bang for the buck, that is governor romney on a free night with 60 million people potentially watching. >> right. it's ironic his big money people, reported on your show, i believe, last week, they were imploring him to get out more and do -- neil: stop talking to us. >> fundraise, get out there, get paul ryan out there. paul ryan denied it. i believe he was muzzled. i don't care. he sh
all this stuff. but he did not tell us how. it was extremely frustrated. >> obama did not mention anything about china. he skirted the questions. he was not direct. it was trying to protect mitt. mitt and confident. when he was attacked on, you do not have details for your plan, this that and the other, i believe he said it every other time -- number one, i did this. number two, we do that. so i think we are going to have a very good debate sessions coming up in the near future. i hope mitt pulls through. >> i thought both candidates did a good job. i was a little more impressed with the president and because of that, i am getting off the fence and i'm going with the president. i think the moderator could have exercised more control. he kind of let romney cut in and takeover more than he should have. i found obama to be more believable. or.as ok with the moderat he allowed us to see the true personalities of the candidates. >> the debate was not anything very special. i felt that romney was being a bit ridiculous, constantly interrupting obama. overall, i am not very much of a gre
aspiration. politically, i think these numbers tell president obama. people are hardened into their corners. we are essentially looking at eight to nine swing states. i sometimes think not to be too cute about this. i would like to come back as a woman swing voter in iowa. --ohio. we're seeing that targeting of the 2%, 3%. i think these numbers will play a role. how big? it's hard to know. the hardening of this election is in place. host: the focus of the cover on your magazine and that is the next president possibility to make his selection for the supreme court. i'm wondering what your view is of the current makeup of the court and which direction it will go as the new term opens this week in light of the vote on health care. guest: your viewers can see that cover. it is pretty clearly stated. often the court is viewed through the prism through hot- button social issues like abortion, guns, criminal defense issues. this is very much about the election where we have four supreme court justices over the age of 70. the next president will have the opportunity to shape this court for a genera
think they get that politicians say anything and obama doesn't do that. he pretty much tells it like it is. did he do a good job in the debate? no. i think he could have been more aggressive. >> i want to ask you about vice president biden yesterday, on the stump some people are calling it a gaffe, that they want to raise taxes by $1 trillion. guess what yes, we do. is that the right kind of message? >> wait a minute. no. excuse me. the rest of that you had in full context, yes, we're going to raise taxes on the wealthy. they've been saying that for a year. and specifically said we're not going to raise taxes on the middle class. that's what he said. this is not a gaffe. this is media hang wringing again. people accused me when i was running of gaffes all the time. a gaffe is what people in washington call the truth the that you said when you shouldn't have. they're going to avoid raising tax on middle class people. it's a reasonable thing. that's what they've been saying for a year. >> do you think this debate has consequences for this campaign? >> i think it's
the obama campaign has a fabulous ground game. we can't tell yet how good -- it may -- romney effort may be fabulous or not be or may be in between, we don't know that. but to echo something that fred said, the obama campaign has to have a better ground game because of the challenge they have motivating and getting young and latino voters out. don't think the ground game, thereby nice for the african-american community because i think the african-american community is motivated where they don't necessarily need organizational effort but young people and latinos it's a challenge. so it's essential for the obama campaign to have a very aggressive ground game because two groups were so important with victory last time and are not going to be there on their own devices without a lot of motivational effort. i think they have to. >> that's an important point. a couple observations. i don't know how good the romney ground game will be. i know it will be miles ahead for 2008 for mccain. from that standpoint, you know, it's going to be just significantly better. secondly, fred made a good point w
